Why is Justin Trudeau more respectful to China than he is to America?
Since the Trump Administration was inaugurated, the Trudeau Liberal Government has shown a repeated tone of arrogance and superiority towards our American allies.
Whether it was Trudeau and Freeland giving virtue-signalling speeches that were thinly-veiled swipes at the US, lecturing the US on social issues, or Trudeau’s latest debacle at the NATO summit, it’s been clear that the Trudeau Liberals have no respect for America.
Yet, at the very same time, the Trudeau Liberals show far more respect towards Communist China, no matter how badly that nation treats Canada.
Consider the fact that—whatever disagreements Trudeau and Trump may have—the US is still available to talk and discuss issues with our country, and is a democratic nation governed by the rule of law.
By contrast, Trudeau and Freeland often can’t even get China to answer their phone calls.
Canada and America are part of the same inheritance of Western Civilization, and our history and future are inextricably linked.
Meanwhile, Canada’s values and the values of China’s Communist government are clearly incompatible, as the suppression of freedom, forced organ harvesting, denial of religious rights, execution of political dissidents, and horrifying surveillance state all makes clear.
And while Canada and the US have disputes like any two nations do, the fact remains that China has treated us far worse than the US ever has. China is illegally detaining two Canadian Citizens, has spoken in arrogant and threatening tones towards our nation, and is clearly an ideological and strategic adversary.
Additionally, the vast majority of our foreign trade is with the US, and given our amazingly weak defence spending, the US is basically the only armed force that is defending North America (and by extension defending the Canadian People) at the present time.
All of this should be the basic groundwork for how any Canadian Leader thinks about the United States. And it should go without saying that a Canadian Leader should always be more respectful towards the US than towards Communist China.
But with Trudeau, we see the opposite.
He’s never laughed about Xi Jinping.
He’s never mocked Xi Jinping.
He hasn’t even lectured China on their concentration camps with as much force as he lectured the US about abortion.
In short, Trudeau has shown far more respect to Communist China than he has towards the United States, a clear sign that his value-system and worldview is severely messed up.
Trudeau appears to be in thrall to the view of the radical far-left which blames the Western world for everything, admires brutal communist states, and seeks to weaken their own nation and our Western allies in order to strengthen foreign nations out of some insane sense of “historical guilt.”
Now, with Trudeau’s screwed up mindset governing the nation, our country is increasingly distanced from our closest ally, putting all of Canada at risk in an increasingly dangerous world.
Two private schools in the Greater Toronto Area have made it aware that some parents were on the same flight as the Ontario patient who has been diagnosed with the coronavirus, according to CTV News.
Since coronavirus was brought to the attention of the Western public last week, there has been a great deal of panic around the spreading of the virus. Originally starting in Wuhan, China, the disease has now spread to Canada—with two confirmed cases.
Since then, two private schools in Ontario have asked parents to not send their children to school if they have recently travelled to China. One school, named Richmond Hill Montessori School, has asked children to stay at home for at least 15 days.
In an “emergency order,” the school asked that parents “kindly note, the same 15-day quarantine applies to any RHMS family who may have come in contact with individuals travelling to Toronto from China or any other countries or cities to be known to have confirmed novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) cases.”
Another Montessori has also sent a message to parents, asking them to quarantine “themselves for the recommended 14-day period to ensure the safety of themselves and others.”
It is unclear whether any of the parents have been affected.
Trudeau’s cabinet is pushing through anti-gun legislation as quickly as possible, according to Blacklock’s Reporter.
Speaking to reporters, Public Safety Minister Bill Blair stated, “There is no greater urgency than making sure our community is safe.”
The Liberal’s handgun ban will involve banning “assault rifles”, adding more regulations to the storage of firearms, and introducing a system that flags those who buy guns. As well as this, Trudeau hopes to “limit the glorification of violence by changing the way firearms are advertised, marketed and sold in Canada.”
Minister Blair has stated his intention to push through the bill as quickly as possible despite concerns from lawyers over potentially shoddy legislation. This legislation, for instance, may incriminate legal gun-owners through opaque red tape.
The Liberals are planning to push the legislation without through an order in council that avoids debate and any public consultation.
Blair’s office did not respond to request for comment last week after a petition to parliament calling the Liberals to scrap the new gun legislation received over 100,000 signatures from upset Canadians.
The interim President of Venezuela, Juan Guaido, visited Canada today and sat down with Prime Minister Trudeau. He is touring internationally to gain support from other countries and take the upper hand over Nicolas Maduro, Venezuela’s current socialist party leader.
Guaido’s trip outside of Venezuela has not been permitted by the country’s Supreme Court, who sides with Maduro. As one of the countries supporting Guaido’s efforts to take power, Prime Minister Trudeau and senior cabinet ministers will be meeting with him today.
In a statement, Trudeau said, “I commend Interim President Guaido for the courage and leadership he has shown in his efforts to return democracy to Venezuela, and I offer Canada’s continued support.”
Guaido and Canada’s Foreign Affairs Minister took questions in Ottawa at 11:30 a.m. ET.
Over 50 countries acknowledge Guaido as the interim President, considering Maduro’s reelection to be illegitimate. Guaido is head of congress for the South American nation.
Sanctions have been imposed against some of Maduro’s government officials by Canada who is one of five nations who believe Maduro should be handled by the International Criminal Court.
Maduro still has the majority of control throughout Venezuela regardless of the support that Guaido has received from other countries.
So far Guaido has been to Paris, London, Madrid and stopped at the Davos Economic Forum.
